Grow. Make. Prosper. The decadal plan for Australian Agricultural Sciences was published in June 2017 and presents the strategic vision for Australian Agricultural Sciences in the next decade
The plan outlines strategies to improve the strength and efficiency of agricultural research in Australia in ways that will increase the ability of governments and producers to maintain productivity and efficiency in the face of evolving natural challenges. Successfully identifying, developing and deploying the next generation of game-changing scientific advances remains an active and ongoing challenge. This plan also outlines strategies to capitalise on emerging technologies that will affect the agricultural sciences.
The National Committee for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food extensively consulted with broad representation of researchers and different organisations to create this plan.
The National Committee for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (NCAFF) has four broad aims: to foster the key scientific disciplines that underpin productive and sustainable agriculture, fisheries and food industries in Australia; to link the Academy to scientists in these disciplines; to interact with relevant scientific societies; and to serve as a link between Australian and overseas agricultural scientists, primarily through the International Union for Biological Sciences.
